's a political element here that might be changing, and that is russia's position. if russia unloads their support of assad, i think assad is almost gone, and you are seeing that happening with assad saying he's going to use some of these chemical weapons. it's desperation. what i think we also are seeing is stronger pressure from some of the other surrounding countries, turkey, qatar, i think the european union is seeing the effects of assad falling and by the way, the use of chemical weapons hasn't happened. they've brought some of the sarin together. >> i wonder if some of these chemical weapons could have been transferred from iraq and lead up to the war. dick cheney said last night, andy, that our alleys no longer trust us and our allies and our enemies no longer fear us. what do you think of that? >> well, look. i think he's right. i think in this equation it's clear that president obama again has moved the goal post on a commitment that he made. that said, i must say i'm more concerned about the assad successor regime and the haste of the administration. i think actually the p
in on their domestic economy, you were saying latin america and russia could be the stars in the out-- and the outperformers in 2013 s. that correct? >> absolutely. okay, there's two things. i think demand, you know, even though they say china's softening, i think actually their demand for resources is continuing to stay stable because as they reshift gears into becoming a domestic economy, they still need inputs. china is not a very natural resource-rich country. they continue to need to import natural resources from both russia and latin america. japan, by the way, is a huge story for 2013. i think japan is going to control their currency issues and really going to start pushing up export. so they're going to be pulling in natural resources from russia, as well. i think both russia as well as latin america are going to be huge performers. of course, government reform plays a big role in that. but i think that's also looking good. >> thank you, ron. so great to get your insight this morning. that's ron shaw with gina ventures. >> thank you. >>> all right. coming up on the show, want
business, giving you the power to prosper. >> russia hosting peace talks to end the civil unrest over 20 months. will they encourage president aside to step down? let's go to our correspondent from jerusalem. >> so far the russians have said they will not encourage aside to step down but it must be solved from dialogue. and he said he felt syria could go into a bloody mess but some feel we already have of bloody mess with 45,000 people killed. the rebels tightened the noose on some of the larger power base like damascus and other areas where there is fighting right now but the russians have been the biggest protector that if some point* russia will abandon assad the rebels think russia will lose all influence which is what they do not want to do. then there would be a transitional government, of constitution, the election for right now it does not seem they will take any part of the deal. the human toll is astronomical refugees growing exponentially. 150,000 across the border in turkey. also jordan mostly women and children. in the long term what will we do with these people on top of th

for russia to come around and pave the way to a u.n. resolution similar to that in the case of libya, do you think that that waiting will pay off? >> i don't think so. it's hard to imagine russia at this point, anyway, from my vantage point. maybe i have been proved wrong. approving of a u.n. resolution. even in the latest talks that secretary of state hillary clinton has had with the russian foreign minister, it's not like everybody is on the same page. they're not. obviously, the russians are looking at this very closely because they can see their client busard is in a very tricky situation and do they want to be on the losing side? on the same token, with the u.s. not really being involved has not really many friends on the ground in syria. what happens if bashar falls? who do you talk to and have relations with on the ground? i know they have come up with this coalition, this opposition coalition, but that, too, has yet to fully prove itself as an effective and consolidated opposition to bashar alsad. a coalition that can have his core group of defectors to break and to basically come ov

different fates and the fate of poland and the fate of aolliaula and russia and in many cases, the degree to which civil society and those society had been maintained or reconstructed that made the big difference between how well they recovered. >> civil society can be quite nasty itself. a lot of the most, the nastiest islamist groups in the middle east tend to be very rich, civil society organizations that provide soevl welfacial welfare happen to believe in islam and powers in europe, as well. >> the interesting thing about islam, the islamist movements in that part of the world are at an important turning point. until now, they've had a lot of credit, if you will, and a lot of the populations put a lot of faith in them because they were the only alternative to the government. i mean, either because they were somehow tolerated or because they were able to be more powerful because they had access to mosques and better way of organizing people. they were often the only civil society organizations that were allowed to be functioning. now that the regimes have fallen and now that there's m

of state hillary clinton held a news conference. keep in mind, russia here, really, resisted the efforts to speed the departure of the syrian leader al assad. so jill, do we know, was syria's chemical weapons, was that discussed here in this conversation between the secretary of state and the foreign minister of russia? >> reporter: well, yes. initially. there are actually two meetings between secretary clinton and the foreign minister. and you know, russia actually does -- this is one area where they do agree. russia is very much opposed to any type of use of chemical weapons and in fact secretary clinton thanked him for speaking about that which she did in brussels just yesterday, talking about that. although, brooke, you know, you have to say that the russians next breath say that they have raised that issue, in fact, with bashar al assad. the president of syria. and he assures them that there's no use intended and it is not a problem and, so, you kind of have two messages coming from the russians but you would have to say they're very much opposed to that and a lot of concern. >> so
? >> reporter: the key for syria is russia and iran and there are indications now that russia may be open to some kind of deal and it is not for any altruistic region but they're trying to preserve what little influence they have inside syria. that is a key russian ally and they would be like to be on the forefront of brokering a deal rather than syria totally fall in the hands of jihadists and somebody risch shuns have no influence on. one of the reasons they may start to talk about the deal is high level defection. this was the general in charge of the military police. when he defected over to turkey it is very nasty thing to say about the regime and president assad because he is now joining the rebels. this is may be why the russians are starting to think about talking to people. there are report that is the syrian deputy foreign minister now in moscow for talks possibly trying to negotiate some kind of settlement, some kind of transition. how that would look where it would be anrd early transition rather than this civil war pushing out what is left with the regime whether that would b
to considering how serious russia and syria have been as allies the last couple years. look what is going on the ground. a general in charge of the military defense group, the military police there inside of afghanistan, inside of syria, pardon me, he just redecked over to turkey and is joining the rebels. this is the most serious high-ranking defects we've seen in a while. that shows another part of the momentum turning toward the rebels, away from the government who are becoming increasingly isolated inside of their cities, unable to project power. the army we heard is running out of supplies, though russia is still resupplying them as of now. but the rebels are becoming increasingly successful with their attacks. the big wildcard if russia tries to figure out a way to negotiate a settlement, what does iran do? iran is the other big supporter of syria as we reported for a long time. they sent numbers of airliners, civilian cargo planes into damascus and other airports with weapons on board, men, members of the revolutionary guard to help syria, the question is russia begins to abandon s
